Former Rangers captain Lee Wallace has seen his arrival at new club QPR hampered by a recurrence of the hip injury that hindered the later seasons of his Ibrox career.
Wallace left Rangers at the end of last season when his contract ended and was reunited with former Gers boss Mark Warburton at Loftus Road.

The left-back hasn’t started a competitive game in almost two years and Warburton confirmed he’s “aggravated” his injury in pre-season.
“Lee had a hip problem that was aggravated in the second week of pre-season,”
Warburton said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“It’s been frustrating for him, but he’s a class act and he’s had treatment and I think is very close to coming back now.”
Wallace has only played a handful of times since September 2017 and the move to England was supposed to be a fresh start for the defender.

Hopefully, he can get over his problems and get back to playing regularly after his career stalled under Pedro Caixinha, Graeme Murty and Steven Gerrard.
Warburton’s side kick off their Championship campaign this weekend when they travel to face Stoke City but it could be a while before Wallace finally gets to make his competitive debut.
